Memphis, Kansas and Hoyer

Rebecca Hoyer, Eminent Domain

From Rietveld to Memphis, Karim Rashid to Droog, design has a permission be fun, cartoonish and simultaneously respected. We've known about Kansas painter Rebecca Hoyer's paintings for a few years now and experience the same giddy feeling when we visit her site to glimpse her latest work as we do seeing a Peter Shire bowl or a De Lucchi sofa in person. Hoyer's landscape and floral geometries are saturated in color and alive with motion. In Ms. Hoyer's paintings, scale and color adjacencies are skillfully manipulated to successfully stylize what we see and interact with daily- still recognizable, but somehow new. Aesthetic fun is underrated and hard to come by, see Hoyer's Deco, Cubist, Post Modern- inspired paintings for yourself:
